with you. 97 house republicans have sent a letter to the president to discourage him from nominating u.n. ambassador susan rice as secretary of state. and this follows andrea mitchell's reporting yesterday that it was the intelligence community, not the white house, that changed talking points about the unclassified data that could be discussed when susan rice went out on the sunday talk shows to discuss what was known about the benghazi situation. is that something that republicans are choosing to ignore, the facts of that? they're trying to draft a letter like this to almost wreck her reputation before she is even nominated. >> and frankly it doesn't matter what the house of representatives thinks. they have no say in the process. this is more of a headline scheme, frankly. this is press release politics, which is the last thing we need right now. but what is important is to look at the white house did put her out there. she did her job. i'll give her that. she spoke with the talking points she had, what she knew. the fact is the administration to put her out there with misleading info
-election. it looks like it's between john kerry and u.n. ambassador susan rice. will the president go with the 2004 presidential candidate or his apparent favorite? and a report from gaza and the latest on the fighting there that i think could lead to a war with iran. this might be the first stage of that war. talk about the gop's woman problem. in story county, nevada, a republican businessman who employs lots of women just got elected commissioner. the thing is he employs lots of women. it's a brothel. [ male announcer ] when these come together, and these come together, one thing you can depend on is that these will come together. delicious and wholesome. some combinations were just meant to be. tomato soup from campbell's. it's amazing what soup can do. >>> another victory for a democrat in a close house race. ron barber, the successor to gabrielle giffords, has won his race in southern arizona. barber defeated martha mcsally. it's barber, the democrat, who has emerged victorious. he was a district director for congresswoman giffords, and he was actually injured during the shooting that nearly
the white house remove those rernss from u.n. ambassador susan rice's talking points. >>> let's starts with the developing story out of the middle east this morning. we'll start there by telling you about the civilian casualties during the sixth day of rocket strikes between israel and gaza. 80 palestinians have been killed and 600 more injured. among them, 12 people killed last night including four women and four children when an israeli missile targeting a top hamas leader leveled a three-story building. this morning, israeli forces backed by tanks are massed along the edge of the gaza border ready for a potential all out invasion. although president obama says it would be, quote, preferable to avoid a ground war, he is making support of israel clear. >> there's no country on earth that would tolerate missiles raining down on its citizens from outside its borders so we are fully supportive of israel's right to defend itself from missiles landing on people's homes and workplaces and potentially killing civilians. >> joining us now from gaza is nbc's reporter. what's the latest this mo
, the talking points, if you will, did not originate from her or the u.n. is it appropriate she's the face of all of this in your opinion? >> thank you, tamron, for having me on. it's unfortunate that dr. rice has become the face of this, because, in fact, she is a highly regarded accomplished civil servant leading our mission in the united nations. she was put in the spotlight in order to communicate what the intelligence community and administration believed to be the best way to communicate the attack on benghazi. rightly now congress is looking at the question of what went wrong, but the question about whether or not she is personally responsible for it is a bit far-fetched, and it's really going into a point where members of congress are making themselves look silly. they're day in and day outhave different statements. the house sent a letter to house republicans on posing her potential nomination to secretary of state. less than half signed onto it. there's not much appetite for this fight. we saw it in the campaign, and we're not sure where this is heading. it does seem like a losin
that we might see tpulg those spots, chris? >> the most interesting one, i guess, is susan rice,s u.n. ambassador was considered one of the frontrunners to be the secretary of state, very popular with president, has enormous regard for her: she was one of his top policy advisers during hit 2008 campaign. this is susan rice that did the five sunday shows a few days after the libya attack in which she put out the story, apparently they claim still these were the cia talking points that this was all a spontaneous protest over the video that went bad, but there's been a lot of contradiction of that. i think she'd have a tough time getting confirmed. she might get confirmed but it would be a real battle and the president has to decide whether he wants to have that battle. somebody else that is clear is desperate for the job is massachusetts senator john kerry who of course played mitt romney in the debate. one of the questions there, i think he would sale through the senate club, on the other hand i'm not so sure that they want to lose a senate seat. they may feel with all the pick ups th
's not stopping republicans from their witch hunt against susan rice. they say the u.n. ambassador isn't qualified for a promotion to secretary of state, because of her statements about the benghazi attacks. even though we know she was just going by the information she got from intelligence officials. bult but republicans don't want fact to get in the way. >> we will do whatever's necessary to block the nomination. >> this president and this administration has either been guilty of colossal incompetence or engaged in a cover-up. >> i don't trust her. the reason i don't trust her is because i think she knew better. and if she did know better, she shouldn't be the voice of america. >> and now 97 house republicans who have zero say over cabinet nominations, are opposing rice's possible nomination. they sent a letter to the white house saying her credibility has been wounded. they keep changing their story in this made-up conspiracy theory. i want to know why they're in such a frenzy over susan rice. joining me now is democratic congressman james clyburn from south carolina. he's the third highest ran
gaza yesterday and prepared to mediate a truce. u.n. secretary-general ban ki-moon is expected to visit next week. the widening scope of the assault sparking fears of a violent new chapter in the arab israeli conflict. forces are launching rockets back and forth in the gaza strip and israel. yesterday one missile was aimed right at jerusalem. nbc news foreign correspondent is live for us in gaza. that jerusalem angle, that had not been seen for quite some time. let's get to what's happening right now around you. >> good morning, alex. yeah, we can -- let me bring you up to date on the air strikes here. according to palestinian health officials the death toll from israel's three-day attacks on gaza has risen to 40 palestinians killed, among them eight children, two women, and according to palestinian military factions, including the military wing, there were four palestinian fighters that were killed overnight. so there's no indication, really, that the violence is slowing down. you talk about the incident that took place with rockets landing near jerusalem and near tel aviv. that is cer
pelosi on global warming, but together, they cosponsored a bill that gave $60 million a year to a u.n. program supporting china's brutal one child policy. >> there's been discussion in my head and everywhere else about where ads work an election. no ad will change their mind. those ads out there -- >> primaries, they are deadly. and particularly in republican primaries and that ad in particular, for newt gingrich, buzz devastating because it hit -- it was the kitchen sink. it threw it all in there. >> what did it say about him? >> it said, you know, he's an insider, a washington pal. >> yeah. >> and he even pals around with nancy pelosi. isn't we just fire her? >> the loving looks they managed to work with the camera shot there. >> real quick on that, the interesting thing and i thought what -- if i were newt i would have pivoted off that and nancy that's what the people are looking together, the partnership work getting things done. >> but they were talking about global warming -- >> the other thing about that ad, that was sbo entire mitt romney campaign strategy in the primaries, ta
it right now, steve. that's for sure. ambassador john bolton is here, the former ambassador to the u.n., quite a roundup that steve provided for us. how do we get answers here? >> we won't get them from the administration. you saw from those political operatives that they have talking about this that their response to criticism is ad hominem arguments. they are not capable of responding. the tragedy on september 11 was a reflection of a failed obama administration world view, a view that the arab spring had brought democrat to libya in the middle-east, generally, that al qaeda is defeated and the war on terrorism is over. that's what led to the decisions well before the attack in benghazi. not to give enhanced security despite repeated requests from the people on the ground. that's why that cable that fox news came up with that katherine has reported, should have been a fire bell in the night at the state department when it came back to washington, almost four weeks before the attack. >> i have relied on the great reporting by katherine herig and jennifer grif and i know fox news in ge
and thrive here in the un. that's what the president was talking about. and i did see mitt romney's ad putting somebody in charge who knows something about business. we'd love to have that conversation. mitt romney's business experience. because as you know and as he admitted, it wasn't about creating jobs. it was about taking everything you could out of a company to make a profit for yourself but quite often leaving the company bankrupt and workers out of work. >> i want to follow up about worker consolidation. a couple years ago when that program was announced that there were going to be different things, it never went anywhere. why? >> well, i think that there is a proposal on the table. you need congressional action. i think that there are -- if i remember correctly -- dozens of different congressional committees and subcommittees that these issues go through. it's something the president is committed to. he's already put reforms in place in the government to consolidate programs and make them more efficient. this is about building a modern 21st century government, consolidating wh
slandering our ambassador to the u.n., susan rice. saying she didn't tell the truth about the attack on our consulate in libya. and even that she's not that the bright. but today, mccain came face to face with the facts. for the first time, we saw the cia talking points on which ambassador rice based her comments on the sunday talk shows. the cia said "the currently available information suggests that the demonstrations in benghazi were spontaneously inspired by the protests at the u.s. embassy in cairo and evolved into a direct assault against the u.s. diplomatic post in benghazi and subsequently its annex. there are indications that extremists participated in the violent demonstrations." and, of course, that's exactly what ambassador rice told the american people. >> our current assessment is that what happened in benghazi was in fact, initially a spontaneous reaction to what had just transpired hours before in cairo. we believe that it looks like extremist elements individuals joined in that -- in that effort. >> ambassador rice reported exactly what she was told by the cia. and testifyi
think it is important. that susan wright, the un embassy came out on the five talk shows that said it was because of the video that the libya attack happened. look at what 60 minutes released on line. there are long passages and questions about whether or not it was a terrorism attack look at this and then you judge why they left it out sunday night after susan wright said it was the video. >> steve: steve croft asked the president. you went out of the way to avoid the word terrorism in connection with the statue of liberty attack. >> brian: mitt romney said the same thing >> chris: can they said his was political. the president responded it was too early to tell how it came about. it was an attack on americans. the president is rehuctant to call it terrorism. he said what group was involved. if there was a group involved with rpg's and knew within two hours afterwards that an affiliate of al-qaida claimed responsibility on social media and for the president to say we don't know which group? it is terrorist. >> gretchen: it is it why that was important story not included in the ori
aligned, by the way, with the u.n. but they come from about 63 to 68 different countries, and you have to remember that texas and iowa and pennsylvania said stay away from our polling places or else. but many other places they were welcomed, and after watching our election process, their takeaway was: astonishment. i mean, they were amazed that most u.s. states don't require voter id. they were confused about why there's no uniform system that each state kind of does its own thing, and they were puzzled by provisional ballots. that's where you walk in, and if your name's not on the voter rolls, you still have eligibility to vote, and then they check your status later on, if ever. they also commented on the lack of police presence at polling places, and they wondered how it is we keep people from sending in numerous ballots when you have mail-in ballots, and many, of course, have wondered the same thing. keep in mind, many of these observers come from countries where you give a thumb print to actually prove that you're a voters, you know, fingerprinted. and in gambia, megyn, they give y
to see the u.n. become a global government, and the u.n. and china and russia which are not yet democratic country. they have veto power on the security council and the general assembly is controlled by nations, despotism, and either we defend it as reagan said or it goes away. and freedom is not the birth right of every human being without everybody fighting for it. >> well put. >> that's an exceptional interview. thank you for hauling yourself out of bed early on that sunday morning. what do you think about that, e-mail us. and the industry is thriving and all because of what they're doing below the surface of the earth. what is the future of american fuel, green or gas? then mitt romney shares a personal story that brings a crowd of 17,000 to its feet, gave goose bumps. how an american flag and a scout leader are making headlines. who is that guy who just absoluted? what's that flag? we're going to tell you. ♪ [ lisa ] my name's lisa, and chantix helped me quit. i honestly loved smoking, and i honestly didn't think i would ever quit.

's improving off the bottom. it's a huge increase. i don't think this is enough to get an un-- it's politically speaking, it's that friday number that people will be focusing on of the what is the unemployment rate. >> steve: the monthly? >> yeah. i think that may tick up. particularly if more people are looking for work, it could have an impact on this race by picking up even though things are getting marginally better. >> gretchen: does this thursday number, which we always report weekly, the first-time unemployment claims, people walk into the office for the first time, does that number correlate? >> sometimes it does and sometimes it doesn't. none of these numbers correlate very well. >> gretchen: so because this went down and lower than expected doesn't mean unemployment will go down tomorrow? >> no. on friday, if the number goes up, for example, goes up to 8, let's say, 8%, that doesn't mean that things are necessarily bad 'cause more people are looking for work. they feel more confident. so all these numbers have to be looked at in context and -- remember, these are statistical estimate
people are confused, right? >> two weeks later at the u.n. he did not mention terrorism but he talked about the youtube video. administration officials talked about the youtube video. i iced to write these statements in the white house. if you are not sure of what's going on you don't write things as definitively as they did. this was a coverup. megyn: we have michael barone coming up and we want to hear from him. five days out and there are a range of voting concerns in ohio, including questions about provisional ballots. absentee votes that may not count and voter machine problems. we are live in columbus on that. while all the polls suggest a tight presidential race. we are hearing about a hidden vote that may lead to a romney landslide. a winter wonderland doesn't just happen. it takes some doing. some coordinating. and a trip to the one place with the new ideas that help us pull it all together. from the things that hang and shine... ...to the things that sparkle and jingle. all while saving the things that go in our wallet. more saving. more doing. that's the power of the home d
to give a shoutout to the un unionized workers. >> certainly, a lot about that conversation about justice. how great was that for table tv. we also know that mitt romney has really taught is the degree to which winning for him has become a total desecration of democracy, from voting accept pregs tactics. that disconnection was when his character came under question. i was hearing from organizations like family united for racial and economic equality in new york and brooklyn was about the services assigned to low incomes of color. they are talking about where local nurses were talking about residents being sent to the hospital because there weren't enough services. >> red hook, a neighborhood in brooklyn is really hurting. >> john nichols? >> i know those fights we had about trade unions and public employees, we see why we've fought. we have seen some historic stories and things that we have talked about. coming up on tuesday, we are going to have a lot of talk about the races. >> what excites me is that there is a lot of action out there, real important people and races running. everythin
th and invited clinton to testify then. meanwhile u.n. secretary susan rice is the top candidate to replace clinton when she leaves her post. despite the controversy surrounding rice's response to the benghazi terror attacks. current and former white house officials say rice is still close with the president and shares his views on foreign policy. well, two different countries, two very different stories. iran's defense minister now claiming that two iranian planes did shoot at a u.s. drone over the persian gulf. iran claims the drone was within its airspace when fired upon. the white house has said the drone was flying in international airspace. the unmanned drone was not damaged. >> lady liberty lighting up new york harbor for the first time since super storm sandy hit. the statue serves as a beacon of hope for other storm victims. liberty island was badly damaged during the storm. bring and stone walkways were torn up and docks ripped apart. power is also out. so crews are using a temporary lighting system powered by generators to light up the statue. it is shut down indefinit
. the un, everybody involved. egypt trying to broker peace also. what does the president need to do to move this process forward? >> he needs to get engaged. he needs to get engaged very seriously. i was struck this morning by looking at the papers, at the consensus expressed by "the washington post" editorial, which is very good, sometimes i disagree with them, but it's very good today, and a couple columnists on the op-ed page, and they all say the same thing which i endorse. namely, this is a real challenge to get at the heart of the problems. if we simply patch this up, somehow or other, between hamas and israel, be if we still patch it up a little bit between the palestinian authority and israel, we'll have a repetition in no time flat. but in the meantime two things are happening in the region, which are not going to be reversed easily. u.s. influence is declining, arab radicalism is intensifying. and that's not a good thing either for stability or the future of israel. >> how does the president engage most constructively to try to reverse at least one of those two trends to stop the
